Pet Turtle PetSmart


The Mississippi Map Turtle is an aquatic (water) turtle therefore it spends the majority of its time swimming and the rest of the time eating and basking on a dry rock in the sun. The care of map turtles is much more like a fish in that they need a tank almost entirely filled with water in addition to the reptile lighting set up. Full grown map turtles need plenty of swimming space but typically a 75 gallon fish tank will do well for one male turtle (females need more space). Gravel built up with larger rocks to create a beach on one side of the tank serves well as a basking area and dry docking station for your turtle or a variety of floating accessories are sold separately at PetSmart.
